https://www.comic-rocket.com/

I noticed this because I started getting some hits from it. It seems to be a lot like Ink Outbreak in that the main site lists various webcomics, and then when you go to one, there's a smart frame or whatever they are in a horizontal bar at the top of the browser with the Comic Rocket controls and such in it, and the webcomic's site appears normally in the rest of the browser window below that.

One thing I find interesting about CR's UI though is that it actually displays a count of the total number of comics the webcomic has, and has its own first/prev/next/last navigation, so you can navigate the comic from the CR toolbar. :o I guess they must code this on a site-by-site or at least content-management-by-content-management basis, because my site for instance is all custom scripts, but they've got it all counted up and working through their navigation controls.

Huh. Looks interesting. You're right - a lot like InkOutbreak, with the added function of tracking your last visit a la Piperka. (or does InkOutbreak have that, too?)

I also like the authors' tools they offer - shop links and all. Makes me want to start a shop just to see how it works. I'll be sure to submit a banner, anyway.

Not sure about their update tracking, though. My comic's entry says it was last updated in April rather than last Friday.

InkOutbreak has that too.

The page tracking thing doesn't work with every webcomic, from what I can tell. But at least it works with mine Very Happy

Interesting, these comic 'archives' seem to be becoming more common. This one seems a bit more advanced than inkoutbreak.

The biggest problem is inkoutbreak seems to be difficult to navigate for a few people, they said they wanted to rate my comic but couldn't figure out how to even find it on ink's site.

I didn't even know there was such a thing in InkOutbreak :/ It probably is too confusing...

smbhax.com - Say, that is a really cool site! Thank you for sharing that. I just submitted it too.

iaviv - You are not the only one. I barely remember how to log-in half the time.

I had some trouble with InkOutbreak too, come to think of it. When I tried changing the banner images for my comic, first it seemed like it didn't work, then it seemed like it had *no* banner... And now it seems to have two entries, one with a banner and one without! :| I'm sure that's my fault in some way, but I can't seem to find a way to get rid of the no-banner one.
